    In 1924, Bogdanov started his blood transfusion experiments, apparently hoping to achieve eternal youth or at least partial rejuvenation. Lenin's sister Maria Ulyanova was among many who volunteered to take part in Bogdanov's experiments. After undergoing 11 blood transfusions, he remarked with satisfaction the improvement of his eyesight, suspension of balding, and other positive symptoms. His fellow revolutionary Leonid Krasin wrote to his wife that "Bogdanov seems to have become 7, no, 10 years younger after the operation". In 1925–1926, Bogdanov founded the Institute for Haemotology and Blood Transfusions, which was later named after him. But a later transfusion cost him his life, when he took the blood of a student suffering from malaria and tuberculosis (Bogdanov died, but the student injected with his blood made a complete recovery). Some scholars (e.g. Loren Graham) have speculated that his death may have been a suicide, because Bogdanov wrote a highly nervous political letter shortly beforehand. However, others attribute his death to blood type incompatibility which was poorly understood at the time.

    so

    i guess stealing the blood of youth works? hmmm

    I've finished three books so far in January

    I'm glad I idly created a Goodreads account to track stuff

    when i was in seattle i was visiting some friends who tracks like, everything

    it would be nice to offload some things to records, but i do not have the diligence for it

    one of them has a giant spreadsheet where she tracks so many things daily

    i tried to just track the concerts i went to and couldn't even keep that up

    Via reddit as well, Im sure
    Past research had found a link between two signaling pathways in C. elegans — the insulin signaling pathway and the target of rapamycin pathway — and aging. Specifically, scientists found that altering the former pathway doubled a worm’s lifespan, while altering the latter increased it by 30 percent.

    Logically, that means altering both pathways should increase the worms’ lifespan by 130 percent. But as the authors of this new C. elegans discovered, it actually increased their lifespan by upwards of 500 percent.

    No you gotta eat the ground bodies of these GMO worms if you wanna be Methuselah

    My dad has a crackpot theory that some genetic freak really lived to 500 once and Im gonna be so mad if it is validated.

    I keep track of books I read on Goodreads and use it to provoke myself into reading if I haven't been doing enough.

    I tried for a year to record every cultural thing I went to or book or movie I consumed but mostly this felt like book keeping for a blog I don't possess.

    Reddit is down this morning. They did some "emergency service" patches for our office last night. Each day, I'm terrified that they'll see just how much time we waste on that site and block it in the office. But no, this time it seems like reddit has pooped itself.

    I'll do more swirls when i have an actual grown up fridge. The best method I've used involves spreading the freshly churned ice cream on a frozen metal tray, smearing the room temp swirl on top of that, and then scraping and loading into a container. I basically have a bullshit dorm fridge like a baby so its straight mix-ins for now.

    not as shit as you'd expect. They have a one light rail line and buses that flow into downtown (which is inexplicably called "uptown"). Our office is a 10 minute walk from the bus depot.
